MNI: Upcoming Online Deaf Resource Center
In keeping with Mill Neck International’s mission to create a world where Deaf people are included, empowered and embraced as equals, their latest initiative brings that vision one step closer to becoming a reality.
MNI is creating an online Deaf Global Resource Center, launching on Nov. 8, which will offer online courses to train professionals on how to teach Deaf children; self-paced courses on various topics related to Deaf advocacy and empowerment; webinars and webcasts for professionals working with Deaf people; and videos about best practices for collaborating with Deaf individuals to build strong communities.
The online Resource Center will also feature blogs, forums, videos, information and resources on various topics such as MNI project work.
“The Center will be a one-stop shop with resources and information focusing on Deaf-related topics,” says Lisa Fisher, MNI’s Global Resource Center Manager. “It will be beneficial because we aim to make it accessible through sign language, reaching many Deaf people around the world.”
MNI strongly believes that by having a central place with information and interactive activities specializing in Deaf-related topics, Deaf people and those who work with the Deaf community will be able to find resources to support their work.
